Retaining Data and Documents to Manage Risk and Compliance
Businesses are experiencing an exponential growth of data in today’s digitized world and companies that know how to manage this valuable asset will be better prepared to innovate and compete in the years to come. Managing the continuous influx of data and documents (“information”) in today’s digitized business, however, is complex. Organizations need to control the storage of and access to information from the moment of its creation throughout the information lifecycle, in accordance with policies and regulations. Companies that choose to ignore the importance of managing information are at risk of data breaches or hacks which can be costly, due to a loss of reputation, loss of business, or possibly fines. Even if a company has an information management strategy in place, it can be difficult to ensure the correct processes are being followed consistently. With limited IT staff and resources, many companies are simply trying to balance the need for an information management strategy against other critical IT projects.
This white paper will provide data/information managers with a set of best practices that they can follow to ensure they have a future-proof and risk-proof data and document management strategy in place. It will discuss the importance of automating information management best practices to ensure compliance with policies and regulations; the need for cost effective storage platforms to reduce the cost of retaining information for lengthy retention periods; and how to provide users with seamless yet secure access to historical information for reporting, audit and other requirements. With these best practices in place, CIOs and IT teams will be able to support their organization’s rapid data growth, ensure secure and compliant information retention, and improve the ability to access information for reporting and audits.
